Heerema Fabrications Group to cut 450 jobs

Dutch offshore EPC contractor Heerema Fabrications Group is set to lay off hundreds of workers as part of a reorganisation plan.

According to a release, the reorganisation will adapt the company to the current decreasing volume of work, and on increasing efficiency and competitive power.

It is anticipated that 450 of 770 jobs in the company will be phased out, affecting the head office in Zwijndrecht and yards in the Netherlands, United Kingdom and Poland.

“We fully realize just how devastating the planned reorganization will be for many of our colleagues who have made such an important contribution to our company”, said Heerema Fabrications Group CEO Koos-Jan Van Brouwershaven. “We will do our utmost to support them throughout this difficult period. At the same time we are convinced that these steps are absolutely essential for the stability of HFG and to guarantee its continuity.”

The plans will enable HFG to continue operations at all its locations in Vlissingen, Zwijndrecht, Hartlepool, and Opole.
